Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 06-18-74 + Hot "Eyes" Jams

Getting to some music questions now -

My 1st ever GD tape (and still one of my favs) is Freedom Hall 6-18-74. When I now hear better versions of the show I still expect the blurps and sound alterations I know from my old tape - that's how much I used to listen to it.

Anyways, I just love the jams in "Eyes of the World" and I have certainly heard other good ones but would love your opinions/suggestions for the best 'Eyes' jams!

Thanks :-)

Wow, I could have written that. One of my first tapes also. Still my fav Eyes. Every note is truely inspired. I always hear the blurps and alterations in my imagination when listening to the digi version I have.

Hear are 2 that I enjoy.

Great '73 suggestions here too. With many more to come Im sure.

Ive read of a Eyes essay/listening guide here on the forum, written by Earl Powell I think, but I cant find it. Ive tried the advanced search to no avail. Maybe Im just lame at the search. I'll find it one of these days.

Thank you for grounding us!

I think you would like the 6-16-74 version (show before yours) which has an Eyes of the World going right into Big River. It has very recently been released and you cannot listen to it here on the Archive!

Fortunately, this sequence was featured on the Taper's Section at http://www.dead.net/features/tapers-section/june-16-june-22-2008

The jam joining the two is truly unique!

Here's a runner up of sorts: http://www.archive.org/details/gd74-08-06.merin.weiner.gdADT.5914.sbefail.shnf

This show features a first set, stand-alone Eyes which is also quite rare. I especially dig Jerry's inter-verse solos. Also can't resist plugging the Playin' > Scarlet Begonias > Playin' sandwich.

And finally, http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-03-28.sbd.mtx.tobin.86833.sbeok.flac16

The closing sequence of songs from this show is Dark Star > Eyes of the World > Playin' in the Band, Johnny B. Goode. The band is very focused and tight in this sequence. Those minor chord jams at the end of Eyes are sweet.

It may not be the grearest version of Eye's, but it's my current favorite.

Somwehere in there we lose Jer for a bit, I'm not sure why? But Bob and Phil take over for a while, and it gets nice and jazzy. The SQ is dynamite! This one sounds to me like Becker and Fagen...

Thank you for rescuing us from our own ignorance. If that is even possible.

10.19.74 winterland is above and beyond most any of the eyes of the world. It was released on the So Many Roads box set.
